At Remove and Restore, we offer a wide variety of basement leak repair services in Burlington and the surrounding area. It is important to address leaks right away because if they are left for a while they have the potential to cause significant damage to your home or business. The longer water damage is left untreated, the more extensive the repair process will be and the more it will cost you. It’s better to correct it as soon as possible.
If you notice that your basement has visible cracks in the foundation, excessive dampness in certain spots on the wall, standing water, white powder residue on your walls, basement flooding or leaks during heavy rains or even an increase in allergy symptoms, you might have a leak in your basement.
An unfortunate consequence of leaks and water damage is the growth of various different kinds of mould and fungi. All mould needs to grow is a source of water and a leaky basement provides the ideal climate for it to flourish. Not only does it have the potential to lower the value of your property, but it also poses serious health risks if left unchecked.
Sometimes, leaks are an easy fix, while other times they can be a symptom of a much larger issue. Whatever the case, Remove and Restore can help you protect your home and family from the threat leaks and other types of water damage pose through our expert Burlington basement leak repair methods.
Foundation and basement cracks are more common than you would think. They appear as a house or building settles as well as with the expansion and contraction of the material when the seasons change. Unfortunately, cracks can result in water leaks that can damage your home.
Luckily, the basement leak repair process for foundation cracks fairly simple. Holes are drilled along the length of the crack from top to bottom, cutting across at a 45-degree angle. After the installation of injection ports, a compressor is used to flush a mixture of mild acid and water through the crack in order to remove any debris. The mixture is rinsed out with water before hydraulic cement is used to cover the foundation face of the crack to act as a barrier. Finally, the polyurethane resin is injected into the crack.
Installing a sump pump and its complementing interior drainage system is a great way to stop leaks from happening. Remove and Restore’s basement leak repair in Burlington includes sump pump installation and maintenance.
A sump pump collects any excess water that might leak into your basement and then drains it before it can turn into a major problem. To install a sump pump, a small pit is dug in your basement floor to become the lowest point where water can collect. A plastic liner is then inserted into the pit so it can collect the water from the leak. When the sump pump fills, a sensor is signalled, trigger the collected water to be ejected.
If you ever have any issues with your sump pump, contact us immediately and we’ll set up an appointment with you to fix it.
A complimentary basement leak repair in Burlington method to sump pumps is an interior drainage system. They are installed when there is no optimal pathway to channel water away from foundation walls when being drained from a sump pump, etc. After a sump pump ejects the water it has collected, weeping tiles are used to discharge the excess water to an exterior location from the house.
If your window well is flooding or causing water to leak into your home, Remove and Restore can help! As part of our basement leak repair services in Burlington, we offer window well repair whenever needed.
Window wells allow more light into a basement while simultaneously working to keep soil and water away from the window to avoid leaks and other types of damage. Repairing a window well typically requires the ground next to the foundation to be excavated.
Waterproofing your basement is a preemptive measure you can take to protect your home or business from potential water damage.

There are two kinds of basement waterproofing we offer for basement leak repairs in Burlington: interior and exterior. The process of exterior basement waterproofing is a lot more extensive and can take longer, but it’s extremely thorough and will oftentimes be the better option over interior waterproofing. Interior basement waterproofing might be chosen if you have an unfinished basement, if the damaged area cannot be accessed from the outside, or if there is not enough space to do the repairs.
